May 24, 2019 | Developer Colorfiction is ecstatic to announce that their award winning 0°N 0°W is releasing on consoles and multiple platforms this Q1 2020. The previously PC exclusive multidimensional walkabout adventure will soon melt brains in PlayStation® 4, Virtual Reality (Oculus + Vive + OpenVR), Mobile platforms (Android + iOS), and hopefully the Nintendo Switch (We really want to but an email or two away from confirming that lol).
0°N 0°W on consoles will give players the same unique gameplay the PC game has to offer, plus many content updates: New worlds to explore, a novel gameplay mode yet to be revealed, multiple achievements & collectible encounters, and so much more! After the console game launches, the PC edition on Steam and Itch.io will receive these extra content updates, so no need to brandish them pitchforks folks :)
In order to help fundraise this tremendous effort 0°N 0°W will be on sale for two weeks! It’s currently 30% off on Steam, and 40% off on Itch.io. So if you haven’t tried this fantastical voyage now’s the perfect time to dive in!
About 0°N 0°W :
0°N 0°W is a peaceful first person exploration game. There's nothing to fight or be scared of, just a wild dimension full of open worlds to discover. The focus is a meditative adventure apt for all ages. It's a place of beauty, of imagination; a playground for the curious voyager in search of something new, something you'll never forget!
The game starts with you stranded in a mysterious town after a cross country road trip. The place seems deserted, long abandoned, but there’s one lone glowing storefront beckoning you to walk inside. Will you welcome its call and embark on a fantastical multidimensional walkabout through space and time?
A peaceful adventure apt for all ages!
Entirely non linear gameplay in an open world where everything you see is accessible. There are no barriers or invisible walls to block your curiosity.
A minimalist reinterpretation of modern gameplay mechanisms that eliminates loading screens, user interfaces, inventories, skill trees, stats, quick time events, puzzles, etc. This is gameplay distilled to its very essence with the sole objective to explore in wonder!
A randomized level progression system that provides a different journey each time you play, giving each player a unique experience!
An evocative musical soundtrack composed of cascading arpeggios and vast soundscapes inspired by the ambient, minimalist and avant garde music movements (Debussy, Ravel, Bach, Brahms, Brian Eno, Terry Riley, Alva Noto, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Boards of Canada). There is a total of 7 hours of continuous music. All other sounds were field recorded throughout various natural and urban environments or generated with various synthesizers and musical instruments.
0°N 0°W was released on March 1, 2018 for Windows on Steam and Itch.io and has since gathered critical acclaim by players and press alike, and described as "Visually arresting" -Venture Beat, a "Sensory onslaught" -PC Gamer, and the "Perfect vacation" -Hardcore Gamer.
